Muslim Boxer Gets Death Threats For Wishing Fans ‘Merry Christmas’

All boxer Amir Khan wanted to do was show his Christian fans some love. The British Muslim shared a photo of a Christmas tree and wished everyone a Merry Christmas on Twitter and Instagram Tuesday. The tweet prompted a slew of well-wishes from fans around the world, but of course, some Muslim fundamentalists took great umbrage with the respectful gesture. 

Breitbart News reports:

On both Twitter and Instagram he captioned the images: “While everyone’s asleep, daddy put the Christmas tree up. Lamaisah’s going to be happy #Christmas #MerryChristmas2017”.

The Bolton athlete, 31, is a practising Muslim, and some of his followers reacted badly and threatened to kill him for allegedly “betraying” his religion, the Manchester Evening News reports.

“I promise to god i want kill you and your family amir” vowed one, in a now deleted message.

Another added: “Muslims don’t celebrate Christmas. It’s one thing to give out cards at school your respecting other faith and their celebration but putting up a tree in your own home….poor kid will be well confused.”

Of course, not all Muslims replied in such a despicable manner.
One social media user, Imran Mirza, replied: “Family, food, smiles, trees, bargains, holiday, sleeping in, happy kids, love, music, Turkey, roast potatoes, trimmings, santa, quiet roads, the two Ronnies, and the opportunity to go to the mosque on a weekday other than Friday.”
